yes, higher response time. my mistake. But 165hz in general seems more like a gimmick and not really a deal breaker.

I rubbed it, I tapped it, I talked gently to it, I even did all the random pixel fixer tests to it. It stood its ground and the monitor is going back. I'm not settling for anything less than perfect.

the slightly slower response times are probably offset in actual performance by the slightly improved motion clarity from the higher refresh rate

Not a deal breaker for sure, but also not a gimmick. More Hz is more Hz.

In this case yes, more Hz is more Hz since it doesn't drop frames like other overclocked monitors. Still, higher response time is higher response time too. 165 Hz demands faster response time than 144 Hz does. I wish they did one of those UFO tests at 165 Hz so we can see the difference. I would expect the 165 Hz to be slightly better, but nothing to get excited over.

Edit: And to be honest, it's very difficult to get one of these panels without at least one dead or stuck pixel :-/
having the same issue with the pb279q, 3 units with dead pixels. Would really like to get one without a single one..

Hello everyone, new to this forum, although I've been reading posts for a while...see this link for the Canadian market...999 CAN$ In stock.

http://www.thesource.ca/estore/product.aspx?language=fr-ca&catalog=online&category=monitors-20-or-larger&product=8042215


PS I'm still on the sideline until quality is proven. So far this one seems to be winning the quality race vs PG279Q

Guys make sure to use those Acer store coupons. I forgot like a dumb ass and I had to call them back. Luckily they were nice and I got $400 back on my 5x monitor order. thumb.gif

Are you in the business CallsignVega? I see you also ordered 4x Asus PG279Q - 4x Acer XB271HU - 1x Acer X34? Do you keep all these monitors?
post #499 of 6417
After my terrible experience with the PG279Q I bought from newegg on 11/24 I think I am going to wait for the tftcentral review of this monitor. Hopefully by that time some new batches will be in stock of this monitor and the PG279Q. Then I can deicde which I want to go with at that point. Right now I just don't have much faith in the 279Q and am leaning towards going with the Acer anyways.

Amazon has actually 0 for sale. That used monitor in your picture is from a third party seller, which is the same as buying from someone off ebay.

More like they were lucky to not lose a $4000 order! Nice to see they didn't trouble you.
